Route Descriptions, Profiles
50km Route Description
6h30 sharp, at the start of the race there is a 2.5km warm up through an easy single track route, where you immediately begin to climb through a technical path to the top of the first ridge. The first water point will be just before the 9km. Running the top of the ridge until you make your way down past the waterfall. The route throughout is very difficult, technical and requires quite a lot of focus on your foot placing all along until the last 12 km where you go through flat land, making your way through forests. Other water points will be stationed before the 20km, and 30km with the last water point placed at the 40km.
30km Route Description
This 30km is one of the toughest routes offered. Start at 7h00 sharp, it begins with a 2.5km warm up through a single track into a hard climb to the top of the first ridge. Running along the top of the ridge, the is then a technical descent to the waterfall. Route mostly consists of technical running but still capable to push quite fast through parts of the route. Water points are situated at the 9km and 20km points of the course.
20km Route Description
Short 2.5 km warm up, straight towards a technical climb to the top of the ridge, where you will make your way past the waterfall which is a difficult descent. Fairly easy running after the waterfall however still quite technical, make your way past a graveyard splitting the route from the 30km and merge later through the forest towards the finish.
10km Route Description
Easy 2.5km warm up and into the difficult climb making your way through to the technical descent past the waterfall. Quite easy going towards the finish line. There will be a 8km water point
